    Serves: 6 

    • 350g (12 oz) sushi-grade tuna fillets, diced
    • 50g (2 oz) cucumber, diced
    • 1 avocado - peeled, stone removed and diced
    • 4 spring onions, chopped
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried crushed chillies, such as Schwartz
    • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
    • 1 dessertspoon sesame oil
    • 100ml (4 fl oz) soy sauce

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. In a medium bowl, combine the tuna, cucumber, avocado, spring onion, crushed chillies and sesame seeds. Pour in the lemon juice, sesame oil and soy sauce, and stir carefully to blend so as not to mash the avocado. Place this bowl into a larger bowl that has been filled with ice. Chill in the refrigerator for 15 minutes, but no longer - the terrific freshness of the fish will be lost.
    2. Once chilled, remove the bowl from the ice, and invert onto a serving plate.

    This was REALLY tasty. It was very similar to something we ordered last week at a local sushi restaurant, only we paid $12 for a TINY portion at the restaurant and were able to make a massive amount of this (with sashimi grade ahi, even) for under $15. My only problem is that it was extremely salty because of all the soy sauce. Thus, I recommend using low sodium soy sauce.  -  14 Jun 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    NO COOKING and this recipe tastes awesome!!! It was a smash hit at a formal dinner party! I was out of sesame seeds and green onion. I substituted a small amount of white onion for the green. I also used fresh red peppers. I suggest tasting often as you mix in small portions of the soy sauce. A half cup of soy sauce would have been way too salty.  -  28 Jul 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
